Set Free To Serve

 A message from The Rev. Nancy Cox, Rector

Dear Friends,

Since receiving a gracious offer from a parishioner concerned about how our mortgage payment limits our ability to grow in ministry, members of our parish have been working to plan a capital campaign for debt elimination/reduction.

The theme for the campaign is Set Free to Serve. This captures our hopes for what this campaign will make possible. Freed from spending 20% of our operating budget on mortgage payments, we will be able to serve the community in new and exciting ways. It is essential that we act now to take advantage of this opportunity.

Forty people have agreed to leadership roles in this campaign. Their passion for the mission of this church is inspiring; their energy and enthusiasm are electrifying. They know that God is doing amazing work through this church and they want to see it grow and flourish.

I believe All Saints’ has been given an extraordinary opportunity to make an eternal difference in this community and the wider world. The offer to match our gifts and pledges is a once in a generation opportunity to free up resources for mission and ministry.

I am thrilled to be part of this effort.

 From the Capital Campaign Leadership Team

All Saints’ Friends,

We are embarking on a capital campaign to reduce or even eliminate our mortgage debt of $1.7 million. With the assistance of an anonymous donor, we can see this happen! This is a challenge match, dollar for dollar, provided we raise a minimum of $500,000. Every dollar we raise at or above $500K will be matched! We have three years to pay our campaign pledges, but only two months to make the commitment that will trigger this generous match.

It will take the entire church family, using our individual and collective gifts and talents, to reach our goal. Imagine the impact of an All Saints’ that is Set Free To Serve within our church community and beyond!

Over the next few months there will be opportunities and events to learn more about this exciting endeavor. Please give prayerful consideration to joining us on this journey. Here are some important dates:

  • Commitment Sunday (submit our pledge commitments): April 29
  • First Fruits Sunday (first contributions to the campaign): May 20

Yours in Faith,
The Leadership Team

For Alumni and Friends

Dear Friends,

Greetings from all of us at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in the name of Christ our Lord!

We are writing friends and former members of All Saints’ about the capital campaign happening here this spring — a strategic plan to reduce or retire the church’s $1.7 million debt and free us for renewed investments in mission and ministry. During the planning of the capital campaign, an anonymous donor offered to multiply the impact of the campaign by matching all gifts, if we collectively pledge at least $500,000. This is an exciting time!

Please join us in prayer that God will bless our efforts and multiply them to a successful conclusion. If you’re in the area this spring, we’d be so pleased to have you join us for worship and fellowship while you are here.

And, if you are so led, we would be deeply grateful for your prayerful consideration of a gift or pledge toward our goal. Perhaps you would like to offer a one-time donation in honor or memory of someone dear to you at All Saints’. You might want to make a pledge that can be paid over the next three years. As we gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing on Commitment Sunday, April 29, we would be honored to include your gift with those we lift to the Lord. If you return your commitment card by April 29, your donation can be matched by the anonymous donor.

There are some choices in how you can contribute:

Make a One-Time Payment to the Capital Campaign Here.

Just choose “Capital Campaign” in the drop down box.

Alumni and Friends may also make a pledge to the campaign through this link.

You can mail a check with your pledge card. You can set up automatic, periodic payments through your bank. Whichever you choose, we ask that you make known your pledge by April 29 so that we can double it through the generous match.

“We thank God every time we remember you. In all our prayers for all of you, we always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:3-5).

Sincerely yours,

The Alumni and Friends Team
